Aims & Scope

Nature Computational Science is a multidisciplinary journal that focuses on the development and use of computational techniques and mathematical models, as well as their application to address complex problems across a range of scientific disciplines. The journal publishes both fundamental and applied research, from groundbreaking algorithms, tools and frameworks that notably help to advance scientific research, to methodologies that use computing capabilities in novel ways to find new insights and solve challenging real-world problems. By doing so, the journal creates a unique environment to bring together different disciplines to discuss the latest advances in computational science.
Disciplines covered by Nature Computational Science include, but are not limited to:
  • Bioinformatics and Systems Biology
  • Mathematical Biology
  • Computational Epidemiology
  • Computational Neuroscience
  • Computational Chemistry
  • Computer-Aided Drug Design
  • Geosciences, Climate Sciences and Environmental Sciences
  • Computational/Applied Physics and Cosmology
  • Emerging Computing Platforms (including quantum computing and neuromorphic computing)
  • Applied Mathematics
  • Computational Materials Science
